Enjoy a virtual tour the Haliburton Sculpture Forest through the gallery on our website
The free guided tours of the Haliburton Sculpture Forest normally provided in July and August are currently on hold due to COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines. Please check back for any change in status.
The Haliburton Sculpture Forest, in Glebe Park near the village of Haliburton in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario, Canada, is a unique outdoor collection of sculptures by Canadian and international artists. The trails in the Sculpture Forest—for walking and bike riding in spring, summer and fall and skiing in the winter—provide changing perspectives of the forest and the sculptures in each of the seasons.
The Sculpture Forest experience, which is unstructured and unscripted, is ideal for families looking for an interesting outing, for those who enjoy outdoor trails, and for people looking for a unique artistic experience. A Sculpture Forest map is available on this website and at the entrance to the Sculpture Forest.
A free guided tour of the Sculpture Forest is offered at 10:00 am on Tuesday each week in July and August. Each Wednesday at 12:10 pm in July and August we offer a shorter 40-minute “Curator’s Selection Tour”. New this year too is our family tour, taking place every Thursday from July till August (time TBA). Guided tours for groups are available by special request throughout the year.
We invite you to tour through this website for more information about the sculptures, the artists, and new additions to the Sculpture Forest and for current projects. Visit our photo gallery to see pictures of the sculptures in all four seasons. The Sculpture Forest shares the park with the Haliburton Highlands Museum and the Haliburton Campus of Fleming College, home to the Haliburton School of Art + Design; great places to visit after you tour the Sculpture Forest.

There is no charge for admission in spring, summer or fall but we always welcome donations. Dogs on leash are welcome as well, as long as they are cleaned up after.
Trail passes are required for Nordic skiing in the winter. Visit www.skihaliburton.com for more information about the ski trails.
